So, this year started really well, when I gave up smoking and started on the C25K programme. I had some set-backs with the running, including a week off with flu, and another with an infected wisdom tooth and subsequent blood poisoning, but each time I repeated the previous week and cracked back on with it. I finally got to week 8, which I joyously completed, then disaster struck. I got made redundant, and started smoking again. I carried on the running, but really half-heartedly and sporadically. I just had too much on my plate, and sadly it was the running that took the hit.
So now I find myself not having run since Easter weekend, and signed up to a 10k at the end of the month - it just seems an impossible task to get my fitness up enough to be able to do a 10k, and I don't know where to start! I don't have time to start from scratch, so was wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and can recommend a good point to pick it back up?
Any advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated!
Best wishes and crossed fingers, Blondie xx
